There are several outfitters in Paris and Brant County that make family paddling adventures a breeze. Leave the gear and guiding up to a skilled expert so you and your family can relax and discover the joy of a few hours on the Grand River.
Once you’re back on dry land, hit the unique shops of Paris for an afternoon of shopping. The Toronto Sun recently named it one of southern Ontario’s best small-town downtowns.
“We tested boundaries and skills we hadn’t tested before and the kids got up close to nature. Paddling in a canoe provides lots of time for talking and bonding. It was a great family adventure!”
— Susannah, Canadian Mommy Blogger, Creative Mama on a Dime
